Nakba Day Special – Eleventh & Twelfth Pieces Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Are Now Out: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and Fathi Shaqaqi

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Y’all better have your calendars marked! “Eternally Husseini” is just 10 days away! And since today is the 69th anniversary of the Nakba, yours truly and Intifada Street’s Mohammad Hamza, who did both of these absolutely remarkable pieces, decided to release something special for the occasion: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and martyred Islamic Jihad founder Fathi Shaqaqi (R.A.)

Some may object to us displaying a Christian figure, even one as revolutionary as the Archbishop, with the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword but we wholeheartedly reject such objections and criticisms. The Zulfiqar Mic-Sword represents a person who speaks the truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.)–and who fights for truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.) And there are very few in the Arab-Islamic world who do either of those things quite like Atallah Hanna. This is a man who has spoken up in defense of Islam while many of his fellow clergymen cowered; who has exposed the Zionist plot to foment Muslim-Christian division when many other “Arabs” and “Muslims” and “Christians” signed on to the scheme; who has stood upright for the Syrian Arab Republic when too many “Palestinians” and other “Arabs” betrayed their brothers and aided the destabilization plot; and who has not stopped fighting for the Palestinian Right of Return when large chunks of the “Palestinian leadership” have sold out to the Zionist occupation. Lest we forget that it was a Lebanese Christian, George Jordac, who wrote the best biography on Imam Ali (A.S.), “The Voice of Human Justice”. And lest we also forget that Christians flock to Karbala every year for Arba’een. Indeed, Imam Hussein (A.S.) and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) are not merely personalities to be venerated solely by Shi’a nor just by Muslims but all of humanity. While I do not mention Archbishop Atallah Hanna by name on “Eternally Husseini”–he’s featured on another album of mine, “Enemy of the Entity”, in the closing track “Beautiful Corpse”–everything that he stands for is everything that the record embodies.

Amid Ongoing World Silence, Iran Slams Buhari Regime For Genocide Against Sheikh Zakzaky

by Jonathan Azaziah

Leave it to Iran, may ALLAH (SWT) shower it and its people with more blessings than humanly possible to count, to keep Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s plight in the public eye and slam the Nigerian regime’s atrocities against the Sheikh’s family as crimes tantamount to genocide. These indeed were the words of Mohammad Javad Larijani, Secretary of Iran’s Human Rights Council. As usual, the Islamic Republic stands alone in defense of the Moustazafeen because the “international community” and “The Ummah” are once again suffering from one of their routine spells of “I Couldn’t Care Less ‘Cause The Empire Said I Shouldn’t Care Less Disorder”. And before the sectarians scurry out of their filth-ridden nooks and crannies and start gnashing their teeth over “Safavid” Tehran only coming to the aid of other “Safavids” throughout the globe, let’s put this atrocious hasbara to bed and then burn down the bedroom while we’re at it: The centerpiece not only of Iran’s foreign policy but its very Mouqawamist-Liberationist identity is the total liberation of Palestine, which is predominantly Sunni.

For Quds Day 2016, Let Us Have Certainty (Yaqin) That Palestine Will Be Free!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) didn’t inaugurate International Al-Quds Day merely as an affirmation of the Anti-Zionism that is intrinsic and foundational to the Islamic Revolution, or even as a political declaration of the utmost solidarity in Islam’s Holiest Month for the world’s most oppressed people. The TRUE meaning of Youm Al-Quds, as understood within the unique framework of Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) incomparably brilliant strategic, socio-economic, geopolitical and Islamic Liberationist thinking, is that just as it is SO important for Muslims to fast and pray with Yaqin (Certainty) during Ramadan–the time when the Holy Qur’an was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), the Battle of Badr was won and Imam Ali (A.S.) achieved martyrdom–it is also important to internalize the truth that that there is nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, more vital to the well-being of the Ummah than eliminating the ‘Israeli’ cancer and this battle must be waged with that very same Yaqin.

Khomeini (R.A.) was laying it out in no uncertain terms for all Muslims that the fight against World Zionism and the quest to restore Palestine is as important as any other Islamic pillar; he even told us, “If Muslims were united and each poured a single bucket of water on the Zionist entity, an unstoppable flood would wash it away.” Is there any doubting this?! Subhan’ALLAH! There is no GCC tyrant, no “Muslim” Brotherhood “cleric”, no so-called “leader” of any “Arab” government or regime, and damn sure no “Palestine Solidarity Movement” activist who has ever been bold enough to ideologically integrate Palestine’s liberation into the very everyday praxis of our religion. And who else but the spiritual sons of Imam Ruhollah (R.A.) who toppled a tyrant and made the Empire quiver is truly defending Falasteen with blood and sacrifices today? Who?! Continue reading For Quds Day 2016, Let Us Have Certainty (Yaqin) That Palestine Will Be Free!

IRGC Commander: West Bank will soon turn into hell for Zionists

All Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip and the occupied territories will soon join forces and transform the West Bank into a “hell” for the Zionist regime, an Iranian commander says.

Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei: West cannot bring Iran to knees over Nuclear file

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the US and its European allies joined hands to bring the Iranian nation to its knees over the nuclear issue, but failed to do so.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the statements in a Tuesday meeting with participants in the World Congress on Extremist and Takfiri Movements in the Islamic Scholars’ View, held in the Iranian holy city of Qom on November 23-24.

“In the nuclear issue, the United States and colonial European countries got together and did their utmost to bring the Islamic Republic to its knees, but they failed, and will continue to fail,” Ayatollah Khamenei noted.

Iran and the P5+1 states – Russia, China, Britain, France, the US and Germany – wrapped up a week of closed-door nuclear negotiations in Vienna, Austria, on Monday. Continue reading Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei: West cannot bring Iran to knees over Nuclear file

IRGC Commander: Any Possible War Against Iran Will End in Palestine’s Liberation

TEHRAN (FNA) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned that any US aggression against Iran will result in the liberation of the occupied territories of Palestine by Iranian troops.

“Americans have very clearly surrendered to Iran’s might and this is obvious in their behavior in the region and in the negotiations, and the enemies’ reservations vis-a-vis Iran are completely felt,” Jafari said, addressing a forum in Tehran on Monday.

He said today the entire region is within the range of  resistance groups’ missiles, which, he said, is interpreted as the failure and collapse of the Zionist regime. “And the final victory will certainly occur,” he added.

Senior Iranian cleric slams Zionist entity’s Judaization bid

A senior Iranian cleric has denounced Israel’s acts of aggression against Palestinians, saying the Tele Aviv regime is pressing ahead with its project to Judaize al-Quds (Jerusalem).

“The Zionists don’t let Muslims into al-Quds, but instead let in extremist Jews and build houses for them so that they would not need military forces anymore,” Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati told worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in Tehran.

He also hit out at a recent decision by Israel to set up 2,000 more settlement units in the West Bank, saying the move was part of a project to push Palestinians out of their homes. Continue reading Senior Iranian cleric slams Zionist entity’s Judaization bid

Basij Commander: Millions of Iranians Ready for Deployment in Gaza

TEHRAN (FNA) – Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said millions of Iranian people are ready to be sent to Gaza to help the Palestinians in their fight against the Zionist regime.

“Millions of Basijis (volunteer forces) are ready in Iran to be dispatched to Syria and Gaza and they have come to us (for registration),” Naqdi said in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.

He had also earlier stated the same, but underlined that “there is no need to dispatch troops to Gaza” as Palestinian youth are enough to battle the Israelis.
